How does everyone prefer to do this?
Do you generally prefer to record dry and add the delay in the mix, or record all the echoes to tape as you play?
Just curious, as this morning I had quite good results running the dry out of my delay pedal into one input of my four-track, and the effected tone into another, printing each one to its own track. This turned out to be pretty effective, as I could keep using my volume pedal to blend the delays while I was playing, and had the option later of fine-tuning the volume to help them sit in the mix.
Unless the delay is somehow integral to the performance, I always add it after the fact. Your hybrid approach isn't bad, but it locks you into a delay time/feedback settings/pan orientation, and IMO I'd rather be able to change that stuff down the road.
